Trekking in Nepal:
Nepal is a trekker's paradise The very organic rhythm of foot travel is a wonderful way to explore and make meaningful contact with the country. On average, trekking consists of walking daily 5 to 7 hours, 9 to 14 kilometers on a series of ascents and descents. The immense contrasts in altitude and climates found here support an equally spectacular mix of lifestyle and wildlife.
Nepal is a pioneer in the sport of trekking. Known as the Himalayan Kingdom, Nepal is dominated by eight of the world's fourteen highest mountains, including Mt. Everest (Chhomolungma) 8848m. Each one is over 8000 meters (26,000ft). In all, there are 1,310 peaks of 5000 meters (16,900ft) or more.
Annually, more than 200,000 tourists come here to trek. You will experience superb panoramic views of mountains, a diversity of landscape, flora and fauna, colorful cultures, friendly people and ancient history. Trekkers leave Nepal with grand tale to share with their family and your friends.
13 Days Everest Kalapatthar- Everest Base Camp Trek.
Day 01 Fly Kathmandu - Lukla - Phakding (2652m): Early transfer from hotel to domestic airport to board Lukla flight. Fly from Kathmandu to Lukla (2800m). This flight provides a magnificent entree to the trek region. Upon arrival set up your baggage's and start your first day trek. It is an easy walk through several villages to Phakding, where you will stay overnight.
Day 02 Phakding - Namche Bazar (3440m):
We follow the Dudh Kosi for about 2 hour and then climb slowly up a steep trail to Namche. As we climb, we enjoy our first views of Everest (8848m), Nuptse (7879m) and Lhotse (8383m) - the big three. Overnight at Namche.
Day 03 At Namche for Acclimatization (3440m):
Acclimatization day at Namche Bazar. We enjoy a rest day here to allow for maximum acclimatization on our way to Everest Base Camp. A pleasant day can be spent exploring the village or Shyanboche airtrip, talking to the Sherpas and simply enjoying and marveling at the incredible scenery.
Day 04 Namche Bazar - Thyangboche (3867m):
Today we walk along a very pleasant trail under the soaring peak to THAMSERKU and steadily descending to the IMJA River where there are a series of water driven prayer wheels. We climb steadily for about 2 hours to THYANGBOCHE Monastery (3875m) and the views from here are magnificent. The Monastery is literally surrounded by mountains. Yaks graze on the small meadow and the monks drone through their prayers. Surely, this is one of the most beautiful spots in the world.
Day 05 Thyangboche - Dingboche (4530m):
We move up the IMJA river valley to PANGBOCHE (3900m). We stop here for lunch and visit the Monastery. In the afternoon we continue on to the summer village of DINGBOICHE (4360m). The scenery all day is superb.
Day 06 At Dingboche - Acclimatization day:
Another rest and acclimatization day at DINGBOCHE. This rest and acclimatization day should give you an excellent chance of ascending KALA PATHAR, the Base Camp of the Everest. From these yak herders' village, there are a number of interesting excursions. A 2 hours walk to the huts at CHUKUNG (4700m) will take you to the glaciers flowing off NUPTSE and LHOSTSE. Overnight halt at the foot of AMADABLAM.
Day 07 Dingboche - Lobuche (4930m):
We walk up a small ridge and then contour around the base of the KHUMBU GLACIER and have a light lunch at DHUNGLA (4600m). From here we have a short steep climb to the terminal moraine of the glacier from where the views are stunning. Overnight stay at the foot of the LOBUJE ICE FALL (4930m).
Day 08 Lobuche - Kala Patthar (5545m) OR Everest Base Camp - Lobuje (4930m):
Today, we climb KALA PATHAR. The actual distance is not so far but we take it very slowly to compensate for the altitude stopping at GOREKH SHEP (5288m) for a light lunch. We then take the climb to Kala Pathar (5545m) from where one can see the Everest Base Camp is just down. This is a hard pull but the view from top surpasses anything you can imagine. All around us flow huge glacier ice. The mountains of PUMORI (7145m), LINGTREN (6697m) and Khumbutse (6623m) separate us from Tibet, and just over the Lho La pass. We see the huge rock of Changtse (7550m) in Tibet itself. But the queen of them all - Sagarmatha (mt. Everest) towers over everyone. This is the Roof of the World. We return to Lobuje for overnight stay.
